Umpiring Clinics

BC Baseball Umpire Clinics

Level 1 (for umpiring Tadpole & Mosquito)

To register please visit the BCBUA website at

Please note that advanced pre-registration is required.

The PBSA Umpire-in-Chief, Mark Jarrett, has just learned that dates for a Level 1 clinic have been posted by the BC Baseball Umpires Association ( BCBUA). There are actually 3 different Level 1 clinics being offered in the Victoria/Colwood/Sidney areas so if you can't make the local one, perhaps you will be able to register for one of the others. The clinics are spread over 3 separate sessions. Here are the dates for these upcoming clinics:


For Sidney:  to take place at Parklands Secondary School - Feb 25 at 6:30 pm; Feb 27 at 6:30 pm and Feb 28 at 6:00 pm. 

For Victoria: to take place at Victoria High School - Mar 11 at 6:30 pm; Mar 13 at 6:30 pm and Mar 14 at 6:00 pm.

For Westshore: to take place at Colwood Pacific Activity Centre - Mar 4 at 6:30 pm; Mar 6 at 6:30 pm and Mar 8 at 6:00 pm.


Level 1 umpires must renew their membership with BCBUA before they are able to register for the clinic. To become a qualified umpire at level 1 a new umpire must attend the clinic and pass the online examination. All Level 1 umpires are encouraged to take the course at least twice as each course contains new material and rule updates for the current season.  Please remember that PBSA will reimburse the annual BCBUA membership fee ($25 Youth / $50 Regular) provided the umpire volunteer for a minimum of 3 games during the 2019 ball season.


Only Level 1 umpires are assigned duties by PBSA, and then for only 9U and 11U games. Remember, an umpire cannot ump a game in the same level as he/she is of age to play in, they must be at least 1 level above to umpire a game. In other words you have to be turning 10 or older in 2019 to umpire a 9U game and 12 or older to umpire an 11U game. A number of our Level 1 umpires have moved up this year to play in 13U and so will now be eligible to umpire both 9U and 11U games!!


I have attached an MS Word document that gives detailed instructions on how to go about renewing a membership or creating a new membership with BCBUA. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get back to me or to our Umpire-in-Chief. We will do our best to help you or direct you to someone who can help you.


A big thank you to all our Level 1 umpires who helped out last year. Your enthusiasm and willingness to support PBSA is greatly appreciated. We look forward to hearing from all of you again this year. Also, if you know of anyone who would like to become an umpire, please forward this information on to them or send me their e-mail address and I will happily contact them.
